4 stars This second I work of the Italian band AKT entitled "BLEMMEBEYA", it is a disk that, although it presents high and low moments ( more higher than low) in my opinion it deserves the attention of the Ecletic-Prog style fans , because represents very well the style . Showing influences from traditional bands of the progressive movement of the seventies, such as (King Crimsom, P F M, Banco and even Genesis and Jethro Tull) doesn't behave as a mere clone. Their high points are in the track 2 " L'assalto " (whose opening reminded me a lot of Thick the Brick, and that it presents in this same opening a guitar solo that seems to want to break the melodic structure of the remaining of the music,sometimes doing sound as an inverted recording) I still highlight in the same track the session that begins about the 4:00 min execution that it mixes influences of Genesis with Banco. Other high point comes soon after in the track 3 " TG Egeo ", a essentially jazz-rock track , almost that totally inspired in Mahavishnu Orchestra & Return To Forever. Another prominence is the track 5 " Stati D'animo Uniti " that presents in the beginning a etinic percussion (synthesized ) in the molds of world or new-age music, to develop a theme in the America-Latin music with prominence for the melody executed by the acoustic guitar and the bass. Another interesting point to highlight in the disk is the full use of acoustic instruments as nylon, steel and twelve-strings guitar, acoustic bass (in the track 4 " Favonio") , acoustic piano and glockenspiel. My rate is 4 stars!!!
